How do you resize a chain bracelet?
To shorten an item, the jeweler simply measures how many inches need to be removed from one area of the item. Next, they take out that portion and then reattach the clasp end to the rest of the necklace or bracelet that’s been shortened.
Open the links. To do this, find the seam on a link, then grasp the link on one side of that seam with a pair of long nose pliers in your non-dominant hand. Grasp the link on the other side of the seam with a pair of long nose pliers, ideally the bent kind, in your dominant hand. Gently twist open the link.
